Your Morning Cup of Inspiration

We live in a world that doesn’t want us to live simply.  Advertisers want us to buy stuff that we don’t need.  The Internet and the 24-hour news cycle want to overload us with information.  Even at our jobs, employers continually change how we do our jobs in the name of “progress” or “efficiency.”  All…

From time to time, we all make the mistake of playing the Comparison Game.  We may compare our homes, cars, or careers to those of our friends and neighbors.  We may compare our weight or our wardrobes.  There is no end to the ways that we can compare ourselves to others.  The problem is that…

They say that the one constant in life is change.  It is true.  Good experiences come to an end, as do bad ones.  So, learning how to move from those endings to new beginnings is a skill that all of us need. For example, I currently am experiencing the tough ending of being a full-time…

So often in life, it isn’t our circumstances that hold us back.  Yes, we may have grown up in a dysfunctional household.  Or we may have been raised in poverty.  But I find that it isn’t our circumstances that typically hold us back in life.  Rather, it is our own life choices that hold us…

Last week, the father of one of my daughter’s friends unexpectedly passed away.  He and I were exactly the same age.  I’d met him a handful of times.  He was a corporate executive, and a devoted, highly involved parent.  His sudden death made me think about how fleeting life can be.  So often, we get…

Most of us have trouble setting boundaries.  We want to be helpful and generous toward others with both our time and our resources.  Yet, sometimes meeting the needs of others can become too much and can make us miserable.  That is why it is so important to learn how to set boundaries with other people.…

This past weekend, I attended a virtual birthday party for a lady who just turned 90.  Over 100 people were on a Zoom call to celebrate her.  The party went on for two-and-a-half hours with a full church service, complete with a sermon and lovely remembrance videos.  All I could think during the call was,…

Life can be hard at times.  It doesn’t always go according to plan.  So, the key to happiness is to not expect the perfect life.  That isn’t happening for any of us.  Rather, the key is acceptance.  When we learn to accept life as it is, then we can effectively respond to life’s inevitable problems…

No action occurs without our first intending it.  We initially are motivated to do something, and then we do it.   The problem is that if we don’t have the right motivations, we won’t be satisfied with our results. Let me give you an example.  In addition to my being a writer, I also have a…

We all can fall prey to negative thinking sometimes.  After all, life doesn’t always go according to plan.  People can disappoint.  Unforeseen circumstances, such as pandemics and hurricanes, can turn our lives upside down.  Life can be discouraging, and at times, it is challenging to be a positive thinker. In addition, some people simply are…
